December 28, 2011 Thank You Cards;0)

Good afternoon my bloggy friends!

We (my family) went to Archiver's yesterday after we dropped my mom off at the airport.:( I needed some "inspiration"....I usually find something to work with there.:0) My son found the Sew Ribbon by WR Memory Keepers.....and that was it; we found our inspiration. I saw this set demonstrated on the shopping network a few months back (QVC, I think) and it looked pretty cool. I think it is easy to use and adds such pretty detail.;0) I added pictures of what I (we/my son helped) used to create the card.
 The Sew Ribbon "does not" come with ribbon. The ribbon has to be purchased seperately. I am pretty sure on the shopping network there was some type of bundle where you received different ribbon styles and ribbon.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great night;0)

December 13, 2011 luminary

Good evening.
I saw a video of someone using Krylon Glitter Blast and decided I HAD to try it.
I found the color Sparkling Water at Michael's; it was $7.99. It is soooooooo pretty.;0)

ITEMS used:
 old plastic peanut butter container, clear contact paper, and Krylon Glitter Blast.

The snowflake shape is from the Christmas cartridge.
I cut the paper (contact paper up) on depth 6, speed 3. It worked great. I placed the snowflake shape on the container and we sprayed the container. You will probably want to use a sealer. I am still trying to find where I put mine. hmmmm
I will try and post the blog that featured this spray.

I have a flameless candle inside. My son was pretty proud of it and wanted to look at it.;0)

December 3, 2011 Christmas Memory Card Game

Good evening everyone!!!!

I just finished making some Christmas Memory Cards for my son's class to use at their Christmas party.:0)

I purchased two sets of chipboard coasters at Michael's; they were in the $1.50 bin.
I attached the cardstock (Recollections) with double-stick tape. After that I sanded the edges of the cardstock down with a foam sanding block.
One side of the coaster is white...I used that side to place the shape. The Christmas theme was the side I covered with cardstock.

Here are the cartridges I used to create this.
From My Kitchen: gingerbread man
Hello Kitty Greetings: snowman
Winter Frolic: tree and mouse with gift
Doodlecharms: Santa
Create a Critter:reindeer

Paper used: K&C Company and Recollections

Have a great weekend everyone!!!;0)
